Came here for the first time as I got a deal through le ville hotel in Manchester which included full English breakfast. We opted for vegetarian breakfast which was very nice, staff were friendly and service was good although I wasn't keen on tea as there was only a certain tea or coffee available as part of the deal.

Nice breakfast. Lovely little deli. Near to our hotel which has an offer with them that we had a voucher to a free breakfast there as part of our hotel stay at le ville.

Came for breakfast from Le Ville. Choice was limited to cereal OR cooked; tea OR coffee OR orange. Charged extra for orange and tea (one cup, not even a pot). Porridge was cooked in a microwave - about the time the others at the table were served their cooked breakfast. Sausages were tough as boots. Egg was overdone. Second glass... More

Really nice friendly staff in a pleasant cafe location. Excellent service. Used our vouchers from nearby hotel to obtain breakfasts. Full English adequate only in size and quality but no better than this. Other options available but at additional cost. These may well have been better quality.

Cold breakfast (cold sausage & beans), undercooked toast, fried egg was hard, old rubbery mushrooms. Asked for a replacement, and the same again - mildly warmer, undercooked toast, rock hard sausage (over cooked and microwaved), same mushrooms. Staff were moody and miserable too.

Was ok, albeit we only had cereal and toast. We could have had more to eat but didn't want to. Just a short walk from the hotel.

Lovely loft style deli/restaurant right near canal street. The hotel we stayed at (LA Ville) gave us breakfast vouchers for this place as they don't have the restaurant on site but this was so close to walk that we didn't mind. Atmosphere was good and the food was above average! Very nice place!

We had the chance to eat at Delicatessen thanks to the LeVille Hotel on Canal Street. It was AMAZING!! The food was amazing all 4 mornings! It was a lot of food and all prepared nicely. The toast especially was AMAZING! Will definitely visit again and love their food!!

When I saw the Olive Deli, I thought it looked great. I went in and the first thing I saw was the specials board - it all looked great but I was looking for a sandwich lunch not a meal. I then saw (further down the counter) the sandwiches. They all looked great, but the range was small and they... More
